We were three couples off a cruise ship for the day wandering around State Street when we stumbled through the door.
The staff was so welcoming and accommodating and everything was delicious!
Our top recommendations are the shrimp po boy, red beans and rice, jambalaya and bread pudding soufflé.
Our only regret was that we didn't allow enough time to try the dark chocolate soufflé.
Been in years past and enjoyed. Unfortunately it has gone downhill and the presentation and food does not live up to the exorbitant prices. We ordered the gumbo ya ya as appetizer and it came basically simultaneously with our entrees! Not good and we said so. And we were wondering how they were able to make entrees so fast -- unless ready to go, reheated?? Back to gumbo ya ya - majority was rice - hard pressed to find meat or okra in there. Waitress very friendly and actually comped the soup due to fact it was served with entree. Entree: presentation really lacking; blackened ahi tuna was good not great; stuffed filet Mignon same - way overpriced and not great; at $37 dollars!! it was small and sorely lacking in presentation and flavor. Not at all worth the crazy price !! Martinis were the best part of the meal. The home-baked muffins good - depending which flavor - molasses, banana, corn good, others flavorless, bland. Finally, a side note, my husband told maitre d' it was our anniversary & no acknowledgment -- not even the words "Happy Anniversary"! Usually a classy & expensive place does something - not expecting but for the fact they have acknowledged in past and it just shows the decline in customer service. Next special celebration in SB -- will definitely choose another restaurant.
After 15 years in the restaurant industry and this hands down is my favorite! Great; service, atmosphere, drinks and the food is amazing! There was 6 of us and we all teased each other's and everything was fantastic from apps to the desserts. I wish there was one in Colorado where I live! We shoulda took picks of the food, we were too hungry and it was too tasty. Oh and make the reservation and don't be late!!! You'll thank me later ;)
You MUST try the Palace. It is a local favorite. The food, the service, the entertainment is fantastic. You will not regret it. GO, NOW and say hello to Harold for me if the still works.
